The archives contain 660 bound volumes and some accounting and business records from the early years of the newspaper. The
photograph files run daily from 1966 to 1994. The clipping files provide subject access for 1972 through 1992. The business
records also cover the last eighteen months of the newspaper's struggle to survive. The collection provides a wealth of information
for researchers interested in the Sacramento region in the last quarter of the 20th century.
Until it closed its doors in 1994, the Sacramento Union was the oldest daily newspaper west of the Mississippi.
